Blood Donor Clinic – Urgent Need for O Negative Blood

Mon February 12

Monday February 12, 2018 @ 2 to 8pm
Prince Edward Community Centre, Picton

Right now there is an urgent need for more O Negative blood to help patients across Canada. Only 7% of Canadians have type O Negative blood yet 12% of hospital orders are for this type. Due to higher than average demand and lower than expected collections, O Negative donors are needed immediately.

blood donor clinic

As an O Negative type you are part of a select group whose donations are compatible with everyone. During an emergency, when there is no time to check a patient’s blood type, O Negative is used. This is why it’s always in high demand for patients in critical situations.

We are asking anyone who has O Negative blood to book an appointment immediately at blood.ca.
·
If you don’t know if you are O Negative, become a donor and find out.

When you donate blood, you find out your blood type. If someone in your family is type O Negative, you may also be a universal donor. That’s right … you can give blood to anyone.
